What’s the only thing that could possibly beat a 2014 HPE700 Corvette? How about one that has been given the Hennessey treatment? That’s right, Hennessey delivers a 2014 Corvette C7 experience like few you’ll ever know, with the ability to take this already spectacular ride up to 1,000 horsepower. Didn’t even know that was possible.
One thing, though, if you go with the deluxe package conversion kit: try not to make use of every one of those horses. Corvette’s aren’t the best handlers in the automotive industry, and if you have to get a little rough with the wheel while maxing it out, well, hope you’ve got dental records because they’ll need them for identification.
From the press release: “The Hennessey HPE700 Corvette, expected to debut in October 2013, will pre-empt the factory’s C7 ZR1 and may well out-accelerate it too with Hennessey’s 700-bhp performance package incorporating the Eaton TVS R2300 supercharger. Packing 8 psi of boost through custom CNC-ported factory cylinder heads, working with proprietary intake and fueling systems plus a recalibrated ECU, the system should provide enough sheer thrust to thrill even the most jaded enthusiast. Transmission choices include either a 7-speed manual or 6-speed automatic.”
